- Mrs A H Brewis made this woman's dress from a Butterick pattern with printed cotton bedspread material, which was released onto the market in 1944. Dress fabric was rationed during the Second World War and many women made clothes from re-cycled materials and from furnishing fabric, which was not subject to rationing although it was in short supply. The dress has a fitted bodice with Peter Pan collar, short sleeves and a gently flared skirt. It buttons from the neck to the waist. The collar, cuffs, shoulder detail and waist are piped in white cotton. It is machine stitched and hand finished.
